I was thinking that I might have rushed posting the last image, and after speaking with two friends of mine I see so many things going wrong with the picture. Part of getting to see the process, I guess. So update soon.

Siempre Solo

So... Things are slowly moving forward. Heres a rough for a "siempre solo" ad thats going to show up in a small but very nice magazine here in Valencia. The format made me do some changes to the original idea I had. Its quite rough as I said, composition/type are temporary and painting is unfinished. The font has been changed. Going for a caligraphy style now. I like it, let me know what you all think. And be harsh, I want it to be good.

Any tips on poster composition would be wellcome. Well, I guess I can move my lazy ass and try to find it myself in google. Ive never been a designer and its now that Im starting to realize how hard it is to put text and image together. Will start checking out good poster artists see how they do it

thanks to everyone whos been stopping by to comment, you all make it easier.

Diarios de Motocicleta

Its nice to sketch from a DVD, pausing it whenever you want. Its somehow liberating after struggling with moving people. Here are some sketchbook pages I filled in while "pausing" the movie "Diarios de Motocicleta". As usual, I couldnt help myself adding some tones in PS. Bigger sizes here and here.

Clothing brand thing slowly moving forward. I am really enjoying coming up with the whole thing. Icons/flyers/posters coming coon.

Moving forward

I've been playing around with one of the drawings. I printed it out and started erasing and drawing. With ink/brush and whith a white out pen. What can I say, its been great to do some traditional media drawing/experimenting. Im really surprised of how rewarding it has been.

I changed the character's head, still have to work on the sweatshirt/torso. These are pictures I took with the digicam after putting the drawing on a sweater. Seeing something vaguely similar to the final product is exciting.

As promised, here are the roughs.
I was just playing around with some ideas for posters to promote the brand. Have to put more time into it to get to a point were Im satisfied with it. Maybe some of these could be adapted for a T-shirt design. But I really want to think of Posters/Flyers and T-shirts as different mediums, I just cant do the same thing in all of them. I must take advantage of each medium's own singularities.

Sin colear, pero vivo

Yep. After a long time without doing much, Im slowly starting to "recover". Ugh, hate this periods.

The animation gig is allready over = start getting portfolio/showreel together to get me a job. Wish me luck.

Heres a sketch. (bigger size HERE) Poster and template roughs for the T-shirt brand some friends and me are starting together coming soon.

Sorry for the lack of posts, and very happy to have you here again. Keep coming for more!
